"Elysium," From Sony Pictures Entertainment In Association With Media Rights Capital, To Feature Auro 11.1 By Barco And Dolby Atmos Mixes

Stocks in this article: DLB

Dolby Atmos is a new audio platform that enhances the experience of sound in entertainment. It allows sound designers and mixers a new level of creative control and ensures that cinema audiences will experience the full impact of their mix regardless of theatre configuration.

"Dolby Atmos gives sound designers and mixers unprecedented flexibility to apply their creativity to telling stories through sound," said Doug Darrow, Senior Vice President, Cinema, Dolby Laboratories. "With Dolby Atmos sound experts can now easily place and move specific sounds anywhere in the movie theatre. Audiences are going to love Elysium and Dolby Atmos is going to make them feel like they are right in the center of all the action."

"All of us at Barco are extremely grateful for the opportunity to work with Sony Pictures on the creation of an Auro 11.1 immersive sound mix for Elysium," comments Brian Claypool, Senior Director of Strategic Business Development for Barco. "Since performing the industry's first immersive mix for a feature film in January 2012 with Lucasfilm's Red Tails, Auro 11.1 has been used in nine films to date. With the honor of adding Elysium to our title slate, this brings the total to 15 films in our pipeline confirmed to be mixed in Auro 11.1."

About Elysium

In the year 2154, two classes of people exist: the very wealthy, who live on a pristine man-made space station called Elysium, and the rest, who live on an overpopulated, ruined planet.  The people of Earth are desperate to escape the crime and poverty that is now rampant throughout the land.  The only man with the chance to bring equality to these worlds is Max ( Matt Damon), an ordinary guy in desperate need to get to Elysium.  With his life hanging in the balance, he reluctantly takes on a dangerous mission – one that pits him against Elysium's Secretary Delacourt ( Jodie Foster) and her hard-line forces – but if he succeeds, he could save not only his own life, but millions of people on Earth as well.  Written and directed by Neill Blomkamp.  The QED International / Alphacore Studios / Kinberg Genre production is produced by Bill Block, Neill Blomkamp, and Simon Kinberg.
